Till we have made these islands another promised land….

The Micronesian President’s Summit was in town this week.  On Monday, Palauan President Tommy Remengesau Jr arrived in Pohnpei followed by RMI President Hilda Heine a day later or her representative…. I’m not sure.  

The last summit occurred earlier this year in Guam following the Micronesian Islands Forum (MIF).  The last summit produced a communique that highlighted their theme and listed their decisions and priorities.

 I’m looking forward to this summit’s communique and their theme as well.  There hasn’t been much in the way of publicity announcing this summit.  

Almost seems like a meeting of an elite secret society with plans for global domination, joking.  But, I am sure that all will be shared after the summit and the people of Micronesia (FSM, RMI and Palau) will be informed of our leader’s decisions and focus for this year and beyond.

I know if you’re like me, you are super interested in what is going on in the government, in the region and throughout the Pacific Rim.  We have so much to look forward to.  The compact, the Chinese, dual citizenship, climate change, migration, economy, education, gender equity and the list goes on.  I’m sure we would love to hear from our elected leaders and see progress in our islands.  That reminds me of these lyrics in our national anthem:

“Till we have made these islands another promised land, till we have made these islands another promised laaaaand!” (hold that note…)

I remember these lyrics and I wonder what is the game plan for Team FSM? Take a look at the last summit’s communique here  17th Micronesian President’s Summit and let’s wait for this summit’s communique ( I wonder when it will come out?) to see the game plan for Team FSM and do our part in making these islands another promised land.  

We must do our part to stay informed.
